Fiona crashes immediately after launching

This can be caused by a number of things, but more than likely Fiona was not able to automatically find your LMS instance. Don’t worry, there is a way around this issue. You should run Fiona from the command line ONCE, by following these steps:

First of all, you need to know what is the IP address or the name of the machine hosting your LMS instance.

Go to the command line by pressing the Start button and typing “cmd” (without the quotes) followed by the Enter key. This will launch the Command Prompt, and here you should enter:

fiona -s <IP address of the LMS server> -p <server port, 9000 by default>

For example, if your LMS machins has the IP address, and you have not changed the default port, simply type:

fiona -s

Fiona should start, and show your albums. From this point on, you can launch Fiona normally from the start menu.
